Dear Ms Hemming

 

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) 2000, relating to the responses received in respect
of the postponed infant feeding consultation. I am pleased to provide our
response below:

 

Please confirm how many consultation responses (via email, online and
postal questionnaires) were received from when the consultation was opened
on the 18th July 2017 to when it was postponed/withdrawn on August the 4th
2017. As of the 25^th August 2017, we had received 440 complete responses
to the Consultation questionnaire, and 135 incomplete responses, of which
39 were blank, making 536 (440+96) useable questionnaire responses in
total. A ‘complete’ response is one where the respondent has clicked on
‘submit’ at the end. 438 of these were completed online and a further 2
were completed on paper and submitted via email. In addition to this, we
have received 61 responses which were submitted by email, including 1 from
the incumbent provider (PSB). It did not articulate appropriately the
planned changes it also contained suggestions that members were unaware of
and did not support and this will help to shape the new consultation.

If you are unhappy with this response, and believe KCC has not complied
with legislation, please ask for a review by following our complaints
process; details can be found at this link

on our website. Please quote reference FOI/17/1356.

If you still remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you can
appeal to the Information Commissioner, who oversees compliance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Details of what you need to do, should
you wish to pursue this course of action, are available from the
Information Commissioner’s website [2]http://www.ico.org.uk/concerns.

 

Yours sincerely,
